The Best Sandals for the 2021 Spring and Summer Season

 best spring and summer sandals for 2021 steve madden review dallas fashion blogger

Sandal shopping has become a major weakness of mine this year. For years I haven’t had an interest because nothing could beat my TB Millers. While TB is still near and dear to my heart, there are so many new sandals that came out this year and I can’t stop, you guys! After buying and returning more than I care to admit – I thought it might be helpful if I share and review my favorite spring and summer sandals.

Here are the sandals (all under $100) that I am currently LOVING and will definitely be wearing all spring and summer long!

I’ve included my review on the sizing below. For reference- I am true US 7!

Sklyer Tan 

Runs small: go up 1/2 size!

I’m sure you’ve been seeing this pair all over your Instagram feed because Steve Madden is known for these right now! In addition, I’ve been wearing these with EVERYTHING because they are super comfortable. I love that they can make a casual outfit feel a little more trendy! I have them in the Tan color and would 100% recommend if you’re looking for a neutral sandal that can go with everything!

Gracey Strappy Sandal 

Runs small: go up 1/2 size! I just got these in last week and fell in love with these the second I tried them on. If you are looking to make your legs look longer (THIS CHIC!) or a heel to wear out to an event this spring, this clear heel is the pair you need! With a square toe and a tapered heel, this strappy sandal is the perfect neutral addition you can dress up or down. I went up 1/2 size!

Madie Espadrille Wedge Sandal 

Runs small: go up 1/2 size!

These are the most controversial wedges in our house. Every time Andrew and I have gone to dinner lately I end up wearing these and he says that he can feel them under the dinner table lol! But I kid you not- every time I wear them out I get 7 or 8 compliments. Which makes me feel so great lol!! They’re super comfy and I’m here for it.

Jo Sandal (use code ALEXVSTOUT10 for 10% off + free shipping)

True to size

Speaking of compliments, I discovered these sandals over a year ago because I stopped a girl in her tracks when I saw her wearing these, haha! I was like “oh my gosh sorry to stop you! I hope you’re not in a rush? I NEED to know where your sandals are from!!” After being on the waitlist for a few months (they sell out so fast!) I have had them for a full year and still love them so much! TKEES makes some of my favorite flip-flops, but this wrap-around ankle strap is hands down my favorite!

Twirl Embellished Lace-Up Sandal 

Runs small: go up 1/2 size!

This is the sandal I’m wearing in the photos and I’m also wearing them HERE. Steve Madden’s newest lace-up sandal has every 2021 shoe trend integrated into it! With tiny sparkly crystals adorning the laces that wrap around your ankle, this twirl lace-up sandal is actual perfection.

Aurelia Embellished Strappy Slide Sandal 

I’ve been seeing these everywhere and I think I’m about to order because I can’t stop thinking about them, lol! Above all, the suede straps embellished with shiny silver tone beads look so beautiful! I’ll let you know how they fit when I get them- but I would definitely keep these on your radar for the summer!

Brionna Embellished Slide Sandal

Runs small: go up 1/2 size!

A comfortable sandal that gives your outfit some glam. Moreover, I also love these sandals because I can wear them with just jeans a white tee- and it effortlessly brings the entire outfit together! I’m partial to the pink color, but it also comes in tan if you prefer something more neutral!

Bailey Studded Ribbon Rubber Sandals (40% off with code ALEXVSTOUT40)

True to size: (My true size is a US 7- and I take a 38 in this)

If you’ve been eyeing the Valentino bow-sandals, grab these instead for under $30! (use code ALEXVSTOUT40) I have them in the Nude Pink color and I’m about to grab the black too! The jelly material is made for the pool or beach-perfect for vacation.
